Once shaped it needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of thin CA glue applying this is, then polished to 12000 grit using Micro-mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. A turned pen with highly polished Paduak contrasting against golden cherry.
This ballpoint pen uses a cross-type black ink refill available from any good stationery suppliers.
All my writing instruments come in a black presentation box as the standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece, a turned wooden pen will make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary gifts or Mother’s day gifts.
